Real Books are a very useful tool when you first get into jazz and I would strongly recommend getting one when you are starting out, but bear in mind that you should be learning the songs and not relying on the book all the time - lots of people need to book open to be able to play a jazz song, which isn't good. It's something I'm still working on myself, I know maybe 20 in my head but I use the book open for other tunes. The original "Real Book" was written by jazz students at Berkeley college, and was an alternative to popular "Fake Books" available at the time. The "Fake Books" got the name because they contained the chords, melody and lyrics, the ingredients you need to "fake it" and play the song like you know it! All the original ones up to 5th edition were illegal as they paid no songwriter royalties, I remember buying mine at a small Music store in West London where you had to ask for it and the guy would bring them out from under the counter and you had to pay cash! Was all very funny. Seems like the big publisher Hal Leonard is now publishing it as a legit version 6th edition. There are a few that I have bought and use, The original 5th edition, The New Real Books all 4 volumes but it's quite easy to find a pdf file of the 5th edition on the internet and I mostly use that and just print out the songs I'm working on and keep it in a folder as the books are pretty massive to carry around! My recommendation would be to buy the 6th Edition version shown below but also find the pdf version and use both. Having the big book there to write on is a good idea, especially as you get into harmonic analysis but it's also useful to be able to print out just the ones you want You will find there are various versions, as guitar players you want the one in C. You will see two other versions, a Bb version which is for Trumpet and an Eb for Saxophone. This is because if a Trumpet player sees and plays the note C it sounds like a Bb.

557 Standards - in C (Jazz Real Book)

You will see two other versions, a Bb version which is for Trumpet and an Eb for Saxophone. This is because if a Trumpet player sees and plays the note C it sounds like a Bb. Why that is to be honest I have no idea, seems a ridiculous state of affairs, but they are not the only "transposing instruments" in the orchestra and make writing charts a right pain!

This could pose a problem if someone was reading from the book while another person was playing or singing from memory, or if someone was using the book as a reference.

Those are the original chords of the song, and they are the chords that are most commonly played on recordings from the s and s. But if a book is going to be the main book that people use, the original chords for a tune should be at the very least included, and any alternate chord changes should be indicated as such.

In other cases, the melody for an older standard was written out as someone might freely interpret it, instead of how it is was published, or how it generally thought to exist in its pure form. One example of this is Basin St. Blues, from the original Real Book Vol.

I think someone playing this chart note-for-note could sound pretty swinging, but this is clearly not the melody for Basin Street Blues. For this chart to work, everyone on stage would have to already know the song. Not every older tune was embellished like this; a lot of standards and showtunes were transcribed in those bootleg Real Books with only minor deviations from their original melodies and original chord progressions.

It would be understandable that a book written by jazz musicians would have mistakes or inconsistencies when it comes to the old popular standards and showtunes.

Blue Train is the title track of one of the most enduring LPs of its era. For one, the title of this song should be Blue Train.

Blue Train is the name of the song and the name of the album it appeared on. Where did they come from?

Peaches In Regalia. That half-note triplet? That quarter-note quintuplet? Did the person transcribing just make them up? And the bass plays the exact same figure twice, so why are the chord changes different between measures and ? This is a mess.
